SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) has announced that Sinner’s Son, a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Coffee, will officially arrive on Saturday, October 28 as the latest release from the brewery’s Woodlands Project.
Arriving just in time for Halloween, Sinner’s Son is an American Imperial Stout that is fresh out of SweetWater’s cellar at The Woodlands, an annex of the brewery designed specifically for barrel-aged and wild beers. After spending “months” there maturing in Bourbon barrels, Sinner’s Son was then pulled and finished off with “a fresh blend of coffee and espresso beans from the JavaVino farm . . . to harmonize with the roasted malts and bring balance to its complex barrel aged soul.” This all results in an imposing, 12.4% ABV Imperial Stout that ” is decadent and rich with chocolate and vanilla notes, a velvety mouthfeel and hints of oak.”
This introductory batch of Sinner’s Son will make its debut in SweetWater’s taproom on October 28. Once early-November rolls around, this Limited Release offering will be available in 500ml cork & cage bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located within SweetWater Brewing’s distribution area. Distribution will be limited, so stay vigilant and be on the lookout for Sinner’s Son next month. Prost!
